Reviewed 13 May 2014

This is a truly luxurious hotel but with a family feel. The hotel itself is large, clean and luxurious, it is on the beach, you literally walk out of the back and you are on the sand, and there are plenty of sunbeds available. The pool is excellent, we spent hours going up and down the water slide and there is an indoor crèche area with staff to help the small children do crafts, dressing up etc. this is inside which is needed in the heat of the day.
Our room was very nice, with a divider for our daughter so we felt as though we had some privacy.
The best thing was the breakfast WOW! everything you could imagine and more!
We didn't pay for dinner as it was too expensive but opted to eat out in the evening, this saved us about 50%, and the restaurants are very close (walking distance) to the hotel.

It was my first trip to Israel and this hotel was an excellent idea. Everything was fine. The room was very cute, the swimming pool was great and the food was absolutely delicious. Our room was a deluxe room with sea view. It was a perfect hotel for a perfect Hanukkah party.

We have stayed at this Hotel over the last 17 years. The hotel is still lovely, well maintained, facilites are excellent.

Great place for families and family fun. Pools are amazing and water sports are beyond compare.

The executive floor service was terrific. The staff was well informed and helpful.

We had a delayed check out which made our travel plans work perfectly. This was given for no additional fee.

The food is amazing and the breakfast is a true feast with every imaginable food, but.....

The general hotel service is not what it was. Luxury accomodations but not luxury service. The bell hops watched my husband struggle with the bags until I saw them watching us and physically went to get help. At breakfast I could not get a server's attention for more coffee.

Check your bills before checking out, we ate at the light dining area and someone's bill was added to our check. Actually it was worse than that, the server forged our signature on a second check.

Questions about hotel services were not answered properly and we had to go to multiple sources.

I would recommend this hotel, and it is a wonderful and CLEAN place, but be aware.

Room Tip: Actually, all the rooms are terrific.

Dear Trace F,

Thank you for your compliments. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed our various amenities, and it was a pleasure to hear that you found the pool, breakfast, and executive lounge to your liking. It saddened me a little that you were less than one-hundred percent satisfied with some of the other aspects of your stay. We take every comment very seriously here at the Dan Eilat, and I will be making sure that your words are heard by the rest of the management so that they are able to reinforce our policies and guidelines, and give the highest levels of service possible.

It was our pleasure to host you, and I hope that you give us another opportunity to grant you the perfect vacation next time you are in Eilat.

We were told that this was the best hotel in Eilat and had a five stars status. I do not know about the former but the later is certainly not true !
Positives : good location , close to the beach; some of the staff try to change perceptions...;there is free wi-fi [including on the beach !!] but very slow and unstable due to overload
Negatives : both the reception desk and the concierge are understaffed ; sometimes waiting queues form at the reception ; during our stay the concierge has been attended mostly by bellboys;
In the room we found , for the first time , an EMPTY minibar ; we were told that that is their policy [?!] ; after some hassle, they replenished it but nobody cared afterwards to replace what we used.
In the same line of cost control we found within the bathroom the SMALLEST soap in the world and no bathrobes .
The breakfast was [SELF]served in a huge canteen with at least five hundred places among incredible noise ; the offering has been wide enough but due to overcrowding one had to fight/wait to get something.
We tried as an alternative the lounge at the 14th floor. There you could get some moments of quietness but the offering was severely curtailed and often , groups of people were arguing loudly...
A trip to the beach is really kafkaesque ! As we arrived I asked the supervisor for some towels ; he replied that those could be taken only from a desk near the hotel so , back up the stairs . The lady at that desk ,knowing zero English, asked for a voucher and pointed to the reception desk inside the hotel ; there- you guessed- a waiting line ; with the voucher back to the lady who offered two short towels and refused to offer the green , long towels !
After 20 minutes back to the beach to confront a new obstacle : not enough chaise-longs and umbrellas . As a compensation you get incredible crowding and noise.
I ask the boy to bring some water or coffee or juice . He told there is none so I go to a bar in the neighborhood and , after another half hour come back with water for my wife

Dear Radu C,

I'm glad that you were able to take advantage of some of our amenities, and that you enjoyed our sumptuous breakfast. I regretfully understand that your trip was not entirely perfect, and did want to address some of the concerns you brought up.

As part of our service, we have a 24-hour service to all the rooms in the hotel that works 7 days a week. Due to how hot it is in Eilat, we allow our guests to use our minibar as a fridge. That said, with a single call to guest services, you can order one of any number of packages, and we will happily bring it to your room and stock your minibar. The same goes for refilling the minibars, with one telephone call we will be glad to send someone within minutes to refill the minibar with whatever you would like. The soap we provide in our bathrooms is the same universal size as that provided in every hotel, and is replaced it on a daily basis so that our guests can always have the cleanest showers and feel refreshed afterwards. If you ever want more, we will happily provide more bars of soap if you wish--again, everything a single call away.

Regarding the concierge desk, the bell boys make up the concierge staff. I sincerely hope that you consulted with them, and that they were able to help you during your stay.

Regarding the rest of your comments, please accept our deepest regrets for any inconveniences you experienced. I will pass your comments to the relevant managers who will be able to take your words into account when giving guidelines to their team members. Please let me know before your next stay so that I can personally take care of all of your requests, and make sure that you will have a wonderful vacation and leave us next time with the same experience as the majority of our guests.

Staff was very kind once accepted the room until departure.
The room was spacious and included a bath, shower and toilet - all at a very high maintenance.
The porch was nice with fantastic views Gulf of Eilat
The room was cleaned and arranged twice a day, including responding to all our requests as towels, soap and more.
Remarkable hotel 5 star +
